As one of the most significant rock guitarists in the history of music – Michael Schenker has mesmerised the rock community since the ‘70s with his distinctive guitar playing style and solidified his place in music history. Writing hits such as ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Rock Bottom’ during his time in UFO, as well as composing Scorpions classics such as ‘Lovedrive’, ‘Coast To Coast’ and’Holiday’ amongst others, his playing has proven to be inimitable and hugely influential for several generations of guitar players.
Currently preparing for the release of their forthcoming studio album ‘Resurrection’ (out 2nd March) – Michael Schenker Fest are very pleased to announce that they will be headlining the Thursday of Hard Rock Hell XII on 8th November 2018!
The festival based in Gwynedd, North Wales has been sold out since November!
